Although National Volunteer Month is coming to an end, we want to continue to express how grateful we are for all our volunteers that support us here at URM and Hope Gardens throughout the whole year!
Just this past Saturday, we had 150 volunteers from five groups join together for a Day of Service at Hope Gardens! Volunteers from Nestle, Calvary Chapel Murrieta, Pacific Crossroads Church, Bel Air Presbyterian, and Cloud and Fire worked on projects ranging from gardening, painting, organization a donation room, demolition, and landscaping!
In particular, 70 youth volunteers from Bel Air Presbyterian Church and Cloud & Fire Ministries came together, as they have for the past year, to work specifically on the donation area, clearing a hillside to plant fruit trees, and removing a large planter in the parking lot area. They also took part in the dedication of a wing of classrooms that they helped to put the finishing touches on that afternoon.
